Our curriculum is primarily based on the Creative Curriculum.  Our goal is to provide a healthy, loving and educational environment for children of all ethnic backgrounds.  We will endeavor to give each child the opportunity to express himself/herself creatively and to develop verbal skills, physical abilities and the attributes of sharing and cooperation.  These skills are developed through the following learning centers/activities:  Art, Language, Math, Writing, Housekeeping, Playground, Blocks, Science, Movement, Sand/Water Play, Music, and Etc.  These skills will not only foster personal independence, but also social responsibility.
